10 Ways to Go Fragrance Free


You may already know that fragrances can contain an unknown mixture of potentially harmful chemicals. Here are ten powerful ways to protect yourself from these toxic synthetic fragrances: 

1. Avoid air fresheners. They are made with synthetic fragrances, containing phthalates.

2. Watch for any product that lists “fragrance” or “parfum” on the label — these are FDA-approved catch-all words synonymous with hidden phthalates.

3. Products that claim to be “fragrance free” or “unscented” could contain masking agents that give off a neutral odor, so it is best if the word “fragrance” does not appear on the label at all.

4. Look for scents that are naturally derived or are plant-based or labeled as 100% essential oils. These are not the same thing as fragrance oils which are artificially created and contain synthetic chemicals.

5. If a product says “Made with…” it can mean as little as one percent of the ingredients in the bottle.
